    The "Best Rally Bargain" is the "Land of Oz"

    The "Best Rally Bargain" is the "Land of Oz"
    One example: to keep the Rally Fee and rally volunteer workload low, Cindy Bunce Jantti is bringing in Chris Cakes www.chriscakes.com for a $5 all-you-can-eat Saturday morning breakfast! If you haven't had Chris Cakes before, you are in for a treat! If you have, then you already know that!

    Land of Oz Rally

    I'm looking forward to attending the Land of Oz Rally in three weeks! I haven't been to this one before, but it sounds like it's going to be a good time.

    Oh ye of little faith :)

    Oh ye of little faith At the "Land of Oz" Rally this weekend: A little rain on Friday, then mostly sunny the rest of the weekend (couple of showers around 0300 that quit by 0500). Temps stayed in the low - mid 70's during the day and low 60's at night. We watched the storms (and tornados) both north and south of us leaving us to party with the band! Power went out, but with our 6kw generator we had the only electricity in NE Linn County - so the Band Played On!! Great Rally !!!~

    Don, what a great rally it was ! You & your club deserve huge kudos for your efforts!
    It was magnificent, and the changes you have implemented shone through!
    The Springfield Roadriders were proud to receive the "most members in attendance" award, thanks!
    Our youngster Cierra Renolds came home with the youngest rider award, and I can't tell you how much
    we appreciated your taking the time to comment on her accomplishment. She was one proud young lady (as well she should be).
    For those who do not know, Cierra turned 16 on Monday, and got her first bike for her birthday. By the following Friday she had logged
    2,7xx smiles, and on Saturday she and her dad completed the Missouri Tour of Honor SS1K!

    The weather gods did not smile upon your area for the days before the rally this year, but it still turned out great!!!
    Perfect temperatures, good folks, yummy food and prizes out the wazoo!

    Indian Nations is coming up next weekend (N.E.Okla)....first time in 17 years!

    See you soon in in Crane at the MotoMo Crane Rally!!!

    Ken,

    We really enjoyed having you guys there! Oh, and Cierra Renolds was the "talk of the town" for the rest of the rally!

    See you in Crain,

    Don
